Workshop: NaNoWriMo (Part 2)

Hi there guys, today we have more of a discussion topic than a long essay on what I think about a particular aspect of writing. The season of NaNoWriMo is fast approaching, and I am absolutely thrilled! I love November, it’s my favourite time of the year, and I know from your introductory posts that many of you have taken part. If you haven’t yet, or you aren’t planning to this year...you should! I mean, obviously if you’re working ninety hour weeks for the whole month you may be a little pushed for time, but if you’ve never considered it, I would encourage you to give it a go. Seriously, I enjoy November more than any other month of year.

The question I’m posing to you tonight is how do you juggle NaNo if you already have a huge writing project on-going? My co-mod (who also happens to be my co-ML for our region, go figure?) is making a great effort at a novel that’s been in the works for about five years now, and she does not want to lose the momentum during November, because we all know how hard it is to get that back. I suggested that she set herself a daily word target in addition to her NaNo words, and get those done every day before she started working on her NaNovel. That might work for some of you. I know some people take breaks, ‘illegally’ work on their ongoing project or do a bit of mix – 50,000 words from their ongoing and something new. All approaches seem like great ideas to me.

So, what’re you going to do? Do you even have anything else on the books (har-har) at the moment? I don’t, I’ve had Other Real Life Stuff going on, and I love taking November just to concentrate on my literary side. Are you even joining in the fun?
